Product Description

Critical, informed reading doesn't come naturally. Read with the Best: British Literature features excerpts from works of great British literature along with engaging activities that integrate critical thinking, reading, vocabulary, literary, and writing skills, teaching students to truly think and thoughtfully engage with what they're reading.

This curriculum focuses on the literary analysis and critical reading skills found on the SAT, ACT, AP Literature exams, and in college level classes. Instruction on SAT/ACT vocabulary words and on the five-paragraph essay is integrated throughout as test preparation. Authors covered include Thomas Malory, Edmund Spenser, John Donne, Jonathan Swift, Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, Oscar Wilde, Yeats, C.S. Lewis, and others.

Each week's lessons include five to six different areas:

  • "Background Checks" about the author

  • "Words to Know" that need to be defined
  • "Literary Analysis" that covers literary terms that are tested every 6 weeks
  • "Critical Reading" sections includes questions about each passage
  • "Make it Real" applies learned skills to what students already know
  • "Culminating Activities" that are given at the end of the week to help students master lessons.
  • "Writing Assignments" that are given every two weeks and related to literary passages and authors; a research paper is given for the last half of the year.

231 pages, softcover. Grades 8-12. This course covers 34 weeks, with weeks 35 and 36 open for review and testing.
